Please note that you cannot use the same WhatsApp account on any other browser using WhatsApp Web. If you use then the session on the second phone will terminate automatically. This means that you can use your account on WhatsApp Web only once at a time.

This trick can also be used to spy on WhatsApp for free.

You can always start using WhatsApp account on one device either by logging out from WhatsApp Web on the second device or terminating the WhatsApp Web session from WhatsApp app on the first device.

Open WhatsApp app and go Settings. Under Settings select WhatsApp Web/Desktop. Finally, select Log out from all computers to end the WhatsApp web session.

  1. Hi Hemant,
    There is a flaw. The moment you press the back key (Android phone) the entire session logs out and you have to go through the cloning process again. It needs to be fixed so that it does not log out unless we do a logout. please let me now.

    • Hi Sohail,
